Moderator's Report

Summary

A stunning drive by Hristo to take the win. A steady drive by Kevin Williams earns him second spot on the podium with Jason Daborn grabbing the last bottle of champagne.


Lap 1 - Turn 2 - Kruger Enge, Allan Davies and Brendan Wright

All three drivers are approaching turn 1. Kruger takes the wide line. Brendan, who is a couple of car lengths behind, tries to hug the inside line but slides wide. Allan is behind Brendan but has much more corner speed and grabs the opportunity to breeze through on the inside. Allan takes the place from Brendan with ease but his extra corner speed forces him a car's width wide of the normal racing line and he touches wheels with Kruger who is trying to control a slide and filter in to turn 2 behind Lorenzo's Honda. Allan manages to continue unhindered but Kruger looses momentum. Brendan continues to take his normal racing line through turn 2 without realising Kruger would be on the inside. There is warp contact and Brendan is sent into a spin.

Clearly this incident was sparked off by Allan's legitimate opportunistic manoeuvre. However, he didn't pull it off perfectly, his side-by-side contact with Kruger was very slight but sufficient to start a chain reaction that resulted in a spin for another driver. Brendan could have avoided the possibility of contact by anticipating Kruger's trajectory and staying well right through turn 2 thus ensuring Kruger had plenty of room. But this requires a 6th sense to make up for the inherent "blind spots" in GPL, something that only comes with practice. In the event there was no actual contact, only warp contact. Apart from controlling the slide better there is very little Kruger could have done to prevent either parts of the incident.

Allan must shoulder the responsibility for initiating the incident, he was quite within his rights to attempt the pass on Brendan but not to use all the road in its execution. However he cannot be blamed for the warp contact between Kruger and Brendan.

  • Allan Daviswarning — Side-by-Side Contact — also, 1 place lost for penalty points


Lap 1 - Turn 3 - Derek Howe and Brendan Wright

Derek is way too hot into turn 3 and makes contact with Brendan. Extra penalty for lap 1 incident.

  • Derek Howepenalty — Rear End Shunt — 3 places lost


Lap 1 - Turn 5 - Hristo Itchov and Clive Loynes

Clive gets caught out by cold tyres and rear ends Hristo. Extra penalty for lap 1 incident.

  • Clive Loynespenalty — Rear End Shunt — 3 places lost


Lap 1 - Turn 5 - Nigel Bradbury and Syd Drake

After rear-ending Hristo, Clive is stationary in the middle of the track causing an immediate traffic jam. The following drivers have very little time to react and unfortunately Nigel is catapulted upside down after being rear-ended by Syd.

Racing Incident


Lap 2 - Turn 4 - Brendan Wright and Hristo Itchov

Hristo is much faster than Brendan through the left hander (turn 3) and has achieved 100% overlap at turn-in for the right hander (turn 4). Brendan simply wasn't expecting a move at that point and consequently he clipped Hristo's rear wheel as he went through.

  • Brendancaution — Side-by-Side Contact


Lap 2 - Turn 7 - Hristo Itchov and Steve Smith

Steve tries to move out of the way to let his team mate Hristo through. Unfortunately Steve's move is unexpected and rather than making room he gets in the way and contact is made.

Racing Incident.


Lap 5 - Turn 3 - Clive Loynes and Allan Davies

Clive is leading into turn 3 but he takes a wide line and presents an opportunity Allan can't resist. Allan tries to squeeze inside Clive but he is carrying to much corner speed and runs wide. Side-by-side contact is made. Allan was entitled to attempt the pass but he didn't have enough overlap at turn-in to force Clive to drive defensively. Consequently it was Allan's sole responsibility to ensure contact was not made.

The penalty guidelines for side-by-side contact are quite clear. If the overtaking driver achieves sufficient overlap the overtaken driver must leave sufficient room in order to ensure contact is avoided.

  • Allan Davispenalty — Side-by-Side Contact — 1 place lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 13 - Pit Stalls - Allan Davies

Allan's pit stop is 2 seconds short.

  • Allan Davis — Short Pit Stop — 6.000 seconds added


Lap 14 - Turn 3 - Hristo Itchov and Lorenzo Galluzzi

Hristo goes for the inside. Lorenzo leaves just enough room but warp contact is made which nudges Lorenzo off-line. Hristo is unaffected.

Racing Incident


Lap 14 - Pit Lane - Lorenzo Galluzzi

Lorenzo does a shift R during his mandatory timed pit stop. This is not allowed and he must make a stop and go in response to the shift R.


Lap 19 - Turn 1 - Allan Davies and Steven Foster

Steven takes a defensive inside line and Allan makes a brave attempt to go around the outside. Allan almost pulls it off but he spins and clips Steven's back wheel sending him spinning off the track. Steven contested the corner and made it hard for Allan, consequently this has to go down as a racing incident.

Racing Incident


Lap 20 - Turn 14 - Allan Davies and Ryk Penfold

Allan rear-ends Ryk.

  • Allan Davispenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 23 - Turn 14 - Allan Davies and Hristo Itchov

Hristo is catching Allan hand-over-fist and and is preparing to lap him as they enter turn 14. Allan appears to move over for Hristo but then decides to take his normal line just as Hristo has committed to the inside. Allan has to make a correction to avoid contact with Hristo but he hits the wall.

It is not possible to confirm from the replay that Allan had been shown Blue Flags. However, it was clear that he was taken by surprise. When being lapped please make it easy for the lapping driver by driving your normal line (predictable behaviour) or making an obvious manouvre which presents the lapping diver with an unambiguous easy overtaking opportunity.

Moderator's Report

Summary

Congratulations to Hristo Itchov on a fine drive to claim top spot. A collision with Clive Loynes on lap six almost cost him the win, fortunately for both drivers neither car was damaged in the incident. Third placed Lorenzo drove a very steady race and only made one mistake at Crowthorne Corner on the last lap. Unfortunately for him this let Clive through to regain the second spot he relinquished during the pit stops.

Rather unusually Syd's engine went bang on the grid. He had to make a shift R and did a stop and go at the end of lap one. An inauspicious start to an eventful race for Syd. After posting the fastest lap, a couple of spins pushed Nigel down the order but his rejoins were impeccable. Derek had mechanical problems down the main straight on lap seven which saw him swamped by a gaggle of cars including Steven Foster who miraculously managed to pilot his Honda past on the grass!


Lap 1 - Start Line - Jason Daborn

Despite having the clutch engaged, Jason's car jumps forward when he selects first gear. Although GPL registered this as a jump-start, Jason did halt the car and was at rest when the flag dropped. It is unclear what caused the problem hence the driver has been given the benefit of the doubt. No advantage was gained by the jump-start and consequently Jason's finishing position has been reinstated.


Lap 1 - Turn 1 - Steven Foster and Kruger Enge

Hristo overtakes Kruger on the outside on the approach to turn Crowthorne Corner. This seems to unsettle Kruger a little and he brakes earlier than he may otherwise have done. Steven is following Kruger but he doesn't anticipate the early braking, he tries to slow down but doesn't have enough time and consequently rear-ends Kruger. Several other cars are caught up in the carnage but fortunately they are all able to continue without needing a reset.

As the following driver, Steven is normally responsible for the incident but given that Kuger had braked much earlier than expected it would be harsh to penalise Steven in this case.

Racing Incident.


Lap 6 - Turn 3 - Hristo Itchov and Clive Loynes

Hristo is loosing out hand-over-fist on the straights and is desperate to get by Clive on the twisty bits. Clive is working hard to keep him back and gets a bit out-of-shape through the Jukskey Sweep scrubbing off a lot of speed. Hristo tries to take avoiding action by taking a tight line to avoid running into the sliding Brabham. Unfortunately Hristo can't scrub off enough speed and gets very close to Clive just as the Brabham finds some grip and straightens up clipping the front of the Honda.

Hristo wasn't going for a pass, he was simply trying to avoid Clive who had managed to control his slide but not before scrubbing off a lot of speed. Consequently neither driver can be blamed for the contact.

Racing Incident.


Lap 10 - Turn 8 - Steven Foster and Brendan Wright

Steven runs wide into Leeukop and Brendan goes for the inside. Steven gathers it back up edges back toward the racing line. In his efforts to keep a tight inside line, Brendan rides the kerb and is pushed out about a foot from the edge of the track. Contact is made.

Steven made a mistake and Brendan was entitled to go for the gap. Brendan made sufficient overlap to justify his right to contest the corner. Steven should have anticipated that Brendan would go for the gap and could have left more room. Brendan may well have made a clean pass if he hadn't clipped the kerb and lost some momentum and a degree of control. Neither driver is solely to blame.

Racing incident.


Lap 11 - Turn 6 - Syd Drake and Clive Gardner

Syd looses control in the Esses and ends up stranded. Clive can't avoid him and contact is made.

Racing incident.


Lap 20 - Pit Lane - Syd Drake and Jason Daborn

Syd enters the pits a little too quick and can't anchor up before rear ending Jason.

  • Syd Drakepenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 6 for penalty points)


Lap 35 - Turn 5 - Steven Foster and Syd Drake

Ryk Penfold, Nigel Bradbury and Syd Drake are having a titanic battle. Steven is following some half a dozen car lengths back. Nigel gets it a bit sideways at Clubhouse and Syd has to take avoiding action. Syd clips the outside kerb as he gets the power on which causes him to slew to the inside just as Steven, who has made up the gap, is driving through. Contact is made.

Steven did absolutely nothing wrong and couldn't have been closer to the inside. Syd's loss of control was induced by his need to take avoiding action. It would be harsh to penalize Syd on this occasion. When a driver has to make a shift R after racing incident resulting from a contested pass, it is normal for the driver to have to take a stop and go. In this case the pass was not contested so Steven is entitled to a no-fault shift R.

Moderator's Report

Summary

A near faultless drive from Hristo earned him the win. A half spin at Hondenvlak was the only blemish on a perfect race, which just goes to show even aliens are human. Lorenzo was dropped from the server on lap twenty eight but the replay clearly shows him finishing in second place. After a minor mistake at Gerlachbocht on lap one that dropped him to the back of the field, John Bradbury brilliantly fought his way through the field to secure third spot on the podium.

Congratulations go to Napo who managed to finish fourth in his first UKGPL race in such illustrious company. Well done.

Notes: Several drivers made poor stops, rather disappointing given that the pit lane at Zandvoort is a particularly easy one to use. No advantage was gained by anyone and more importantly no competitors were hindered. However, drivers are reminded to check the rules for pit stops; in summary approach with caution and stop close to the wall.


Lap 2 - Turn 1 - Brendan Wright, Allan Davis and Nigel Bradbury

Brendan is following Nigel into Tarzanbocht and closes slightly on the brakes. Allan has been slipstreaming Brendan down the straight and pulls out in order to take the inside line into Tarzanbocht. Allan was a long way back but he is truly awesome on the brakes and takes the inside line away from Brendan. Brendan was worried about rear-ending Nigel and he knew Allan was going for the inside so he decided to move over and contact was made. Brendan's move was too late; he should have taken a defensive line much further back, probably no later than the bridge.

Allan was quite brilliant on the brakes into Tarzanbocht and comparisons with other laps prove he would have made the corner and what's more maintained a tight inside line. Brendan moved over and consequently contact was made after Allan had legitimately taken the inside line. This is blocking and hence Brendan must shoulder the responsibility for the incident.

  • Brendanpenalty — Blocking — 2 places lost


Brendan was contesting the pass so he is not entitled to a no fault shift R.

  • Brendan — Missed Stop and Go — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 3 - Turn 1 - John Bradbury and Ryk Penfold

John executes a perfect pass on the inside at Tarzanbocht. He is clearly through, holding the inside line and a full car's length ahead when Ryk decides to try a pass around the outside. Ryk gets the drive but he doesn't give John the room he is entitled to and contact is made.

The time to defend the position had long gone and Ryk tried a very ambitious move that didn't pay off. There is a bit of warp here that exacerbates the incident, but John was practically equidistant from the curb throughout the entire manoeuvre so the responsibility for the contact resides with Ryk.

  • Ryk Penfoldpenalty — Side by Side Contact — 1 place lost


Lap 4 - Turn 1 - Lorenzo Galluzzi and Kruger Enge

Kruger tries for the inside line at Tarzanbocht but decides he isn't going to make it and backs out of the move. Lorenzo takes his normal racing line and they enter the corner line astern. Although there is no visible contact on the server Lorenzo is punted off. Excellent rejoin by Lorenzo.

This is clearly warp contact. Lorenzo's client didn't expect Kruger to brake quite so well and consequently registered a collision. Lorenzo was far enough ahead to be entitled to take the racing line (Kruger hadn't achieved enough overlap) but he would have been wise to take a wider line. When Kruger disappeared from Lorenzo's mirrors there was no way Lorenzo could be sure Kruger wasn't along side. As it was Lorenzo's line just made him more prone to the affects of internet lag. The internet lag will always favour the following car in situations like this.

Warp Incident.


Lap 5 - Turn 1 - John Bradbury and Ryk Penfold

In a near repeat of their incident 2 laps earlier, John takes the inside line and Ryk the outside. This time both drivers are holding their own line but unfortunately there is warp contact and Ryk is punted off the track.

Neither driver drifted across into the other so neither is to blame, just a simple case of warp contact.

Warp Incident.


Lap 8 - Turn 2 - Clive Loynes and Derek Howe

Clive tries to take Derek on the outside at Gerlachbocht but isn't clearly past before he moves over and there is contact.

  • Clive Loynespenalty — Side by Side Contact — 1 place lost


Lap 10 - Pit Lane - Brendan Wright

Brendan's pit stop is 3 seconds short.

  • Brendan — Short Pit Stop — 9.000 seconds added


Lap 29 - Turn 1 - Allan Davis and Jason Daborn

Allan overtakes on the entry to Tarzanbocht and manages to keep the inside line but his tyres are on the limit of adhesion. Jason conceded the corner but has maintained his momentum and is poised to replay the complement on the exit. Consequently Jason is very close to Alan's gearbox. Alan loses grip for a split second and has to put in some opposite lock, this only slows him fractionally but this is enough to cause the gap between the Cooper and Brabham to close slightly. Although no contact is apparent on the server the cars were close enough for warp contact and Alan is punted off the track.

Warp incident.


Lap 33 - Turn 8 - Kruger Enge and John Bradbury

Kruger is following Derek Howe into Scheiviak with John, who is about to lap them both, several car lengths back. Derek sees a blue flag and tries to leave room on the inside but Kruger (who was probably unsighted) mistook this an opportunity to pass and went for the inside. Unfortunately John, who was catching them hand over fist, was already there and contact was made.

This was an unfortunate sequence of events as a consequence of drivers trying to obey the blue flags. No one made an error of judgement or a rash move it was simply unfortunate.

Moderator's Report

Summary

John Bradbury bided his time and whilst the faster cars took their pit stops, he brought the Cooper home in first place. Despite setting the fastest lap, Hristo couldn't quite overcome the pit stop disadvantage of the Honda and challenge John for the win. Hristo's cause was not helped by an engine blow up on lap twelve when he was in second place, a mere seven seconds behind John. Lorenzo completed the podium in another Cooper.


Lap 1 - Les Combes - Nigel Bradbury and Ken Murray

Ken gets a little out of shape on the entry to Les Combes and he slows considerably as he tries (successfully) to correct the slide. Nige is committed to his line and can't avoid tapping Ken's nearside rear wheel. Both cars spin round and a multiple pile-up occurs involving several cars.

Nige wasn't going for a pass, he simply couldn't avoid Ken's sliding Cooper. Clive Gardner, Steven Foster, Derek Howe, Ryk Penfold and Iestyn Davies were all in the same predicament and couldn't avoid contact. No one can really be blamed for this incident so all drivers are entitled to a no-fault shift-R.

Racing Incident.


Lap 1 - Stavelot - Clive Loynes and Brendan Wright

Allan Davies is a bit hot into Stavelot and clouts the hedgerow sending him into a spin towards the inside of the track. Allan has barely come to rest when Clive arrives. Clive slows and takes a wide line around Allan. Brendan is next along and also manages to avoid Allan but he is travelling some 15mph faster than Clive and as he sweeps by on the inside warp contact is made sending Clive over the wall and into the fields.

Careful examination of the server replay shows that no actual contact was made between Clive and Brendan.

Warp Incident.


Lap 6 - L'Eau Rouge - Nigel Bradbury and Derek Howe

Nigel is thundering down the hill towards L'Eau Rouge just as Derek is completing his pit stop. Derek pulls over onto the racing line before he is up to speed and makes contact with Nigel's Brabham.

Nigel stayed on the racing line, which is over on the left hand side of the track here, giving Derek plenty of room. Derek should have stayed right and kept off the racing line until he was up to speed.

  • Derek Howepenalty — Side by Side Contact — 1 place lost


Lap 8 - Pit Lane - Allan Davies

Allan pulls in for his pit stop but parks the car too far away from the pit wall (he needs to be within half a cars width of the stalls). However this is of no consequence because Allan forgets to spin up the wheels during a long pit stop and is retired by GPL after he hadn’t moved for 30 seconds (Allan, please read the guidelines on the web site describing how to perform a pit stop).


Lap 8 - La Source - Ken Murray and Ryk Penfold

Ken rear ends Ryk on the approach to La Source.

  • Ken Murraypenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


Lap 15 - Blanchimont - Kruger Enge and Clive Loynes
Clive is slipstreaming Kruger down the straight towards Blanchimont. Kruger takes up the defensive inside line but Clive has the momentum and pulls off a brilliant pass round the outside. Kruger tucks in behind but leaves his braking too late and rear-ends Clive.

  • Kruger Engepenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


Kruger needs a shift-R but since this was the last lap he has no opportunity to perform a stop and go.

  • Kruger Enge — Missed Stop and Go — 15.000 seconds added

Moderator's Report

Summary

Another stunning drive by John Bradbury earned him top spot on the podium. Second place goes to Lorenzo after a string of consistent laps in the BRM. A spin at Nouveau Monde on lap 4 cost Hristo the chance of the win but he recovered well from eighth to secure third place on the podium.


Lap 1 - Turn 12 - John Bradbury and Hristo Itchov

John is leading on the approach to Scierie with Hristo in his slipstream. Hristo moves to the right to position himself for a pass but John moves to the inside to defend the line. John is entitled to move to defend the inside line but he moves over after Hristo. This happens well before the braking zone.

Competitors can drive defensively but they cannot block. A lead driver moving over in response to a following driver's movement is blocking. A lead driver moving over in anticipation of a following driver's move is defensive driving. This happened early enough to give Hristo the opportunity to change his line.


Lap 8 - Turn 2 - Clive Gardner and Napo

Clive is leading through turn two but clips the grass on the exit; this upsets the car and Clive has to lift to maintain control. Napo realises what has happened and brakes to avoid rear ending Clive. Unfortunately warp contact is made and Clive is punted off.

Warp Incident


Lap 8 - Turn 12 - Steven Foster and Brendan Wright

Bendan slipstreams Steven on the approach to Scierie and takes the inside line into the corner. Steven knows he is there and leaves room but Brendan runs a little wide nevertheless there is still room for two cars but warp contact is made and Steven is punted off.

Warp Incident


Lap 10 - Turn 5 - Steven Foster and Ryk Penfold

Ryk seems to be distracted by Brendan's Cooper which is marooned on the inside of Nouveau Monde and misjudges his braking. He gently hits the tyres and bounces back on the same line. Steven Foster arrives and is confronted by a Honda slowly rolling back, unfortunately Steven can't slow down quick enough and contact is made.

Racing Incident


Lap 13 - Turn 13 - Napo and Kruger Enge

Side by side through turn 13, warp contact is made and Napo crashes out.

Warp Incident.


Lap 14 - Pit Lane - Ken Murray

Ken's pit stop could have been better. A little closer to the stalls next time please Ken. Also there's no need to spin the wheels up six times during a 43 second pit stop. One spin up at 20 to 25 seconds would have been enough or to be extra safe one at 15 seconds and then another at 30 seconds.

Note: Allan Davies did a model pit stop in another Eagle on lap 9.


Lap 18 - Turn 1 - Napo and Ken Murray

Ken slipstreams Napo down the straight and makes a pass on the inside. Napo tries to tuck in behind Ken but misjudges the move and makes slight contact with Ken's Gearbox. Ken spins and continues but Napo rolls and is out of the race.

Ken had clearly won the corner and held the inside line without drifting wide. Napo maintained the racing line instead of staying wide, he knew Ken was there and tried to leave room but he moved over slightly too early. Napo didn't initiate the move but it was his misjudgement that caused the incident consequently Napo is responsible for the contact, or rather responsible for failing to avoid making contact.

Summary

After being hounded by Neil Stratton's Ferrari over the early laps, John Bradbury edged away from the pack to claim a convincing victory. Napo's pass of Brendan on the last lap at Club was superb and Brendan's fight back at Abbey was gritty and determined but well, and cleanly, defended by Napo. This secured a well-deserved second place on the podium for Napo. After an appalling start which dropped him to the back of the pack, and despite the lengthy Eagle pit-stop, Iestyn Davies clawed his way back through the field to cross the line in third place finishing just two seconds behind Napo. Unfortunately, Iestyn's pit stop was four seconds short which means he looses the podium place to Brendan Wright. Overall a tremendous race with some exceptional driving and plenty of excitement.


Lap 1 - Turn 5 - Syd Drake and Iestyn Davies

After an atrocious start that drops him from third on the grid to last into Copse, Iestyn makes the most of the Eagles straight-line speed down the Hangar Straight to breeze past Steven Foster on the approach to Stowe. Syd runs wide into Stowe and presents Iestyn with a golden opportunity to make up another place. Syd manages to halt the drift toward the grass and straightens the car up ready to accelerate out of the corner. Unfortunately he doesn't notice Iestyn who is on the inside taking a perfect tight line. Contact is made and Syd takes to the grass, Iestyn continues unabated.

Iestyn did nothing wrong here and had overtaken Syd when contact was made. Syd was simply trying to control the slide.

Racing Incident


Lap 2 - Turn 5 - Clive Gardner and Napo

Clive looses the rear end in Stowe and ends up stationary on the racing line and pointing the wrong way. Napo is following closely and despite braking heavily cannot avoid bumping into Clive.

Racing Incident


Lap 2 -Turn 5 -Clive Gardner

After the incident with Napo, Clive makes a shift-R but doesn't do a stop and go. Since the shift-R was not as a result of a contested pass the need to do a stop and go is waived.


Lap 4 - Turn 1 - Steven Foster and Syd Drake

Syd brakes at his normal braking point but this is too late to avoid rear ending Steven.

  • Syd Drakepenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


Lap 4 - Turn 2 - Syd Drake and Clive Gardner

Syd is up to speed after his shift R following the incident with Steven at the previous corner. He is on the slower inside line and on cold tyres so the grip isn't as good as it should be so he is not as quick as usual. Clive has the Honda on full chat and barrels into Maggotts rear-ending Syd in the process.

Although Syd was on cold tyres and hence not as quick as usual, he was up to racing speed (for the inside line) and well ahead so he was entitled to take his line. Clive should have backed off or stayed wide.

  • EvilClivepenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


Lap 18 - Pit Lane - Iestyn Davies

Iestyn's pit stop is 4 seconds short. Also Iestyn reversed in the pit lane each time he spun up the wheels to avoid being retired by GPL. This is not to be recommended because it may interfere with another driver trying to do a stop and there is a risk that GPL will black flag a driver for reversing.

Summary

Hristo stormed into the lead from pole with John Bradbury slotting into second place and Ken Murray in third. Hristo tried to build a decent lead in order to overcome the Honda's pit stop disadvantage over John's Cooper. Hristo pitted first and yielded the lead to John. John held the lead until it was time for him to make his stop, at which point Hristo retook the lead. After only 21 laps Hristo had overcome the pit stop disadvantage of the Honda and was poised for victory. Unfortunately for Hristo the Honda engine couldn't last the distance and expired on lap 30. This handed the lead back to John and despite a valiant effort, Hristo couldn't catch John's flying Cooper and he had to settle for second place behind John. Kruger managed to put in a very steady drive with incredibly consistent mistake-free laps earning him a well-deserved third place.

Notes: Despite previous warnings, particularly after the Zandvoort race, several drivers made poor pit stops. There will be no more warnings and poor pit stops will be rewarded with a 5 second time penalty.


Lap 1 - Turn 4 - Clive Loynes and Brendan Wright

Clive makes a complete mess of his braking. He brakes early then, realising he may be rear ended, gets back on the power again. Unfortunately this forces him to slide wide making contact with Brendan.

  • Clive Loynespenalty — Rear End Shunt — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 9 - Pit Lane - Neil Stratton

Neil is too far away from the pit wall and begins to creep down the pit lane before the end of his stop.

  • Glyn — Incorrect Pit Stop — 5.000 seconds added


Lap 18 - Pit Lane - Ken Murray

Another poor pit stop by Ken. No need to spin up 4 times for a 33 second stop and effectively creep the entire length of the pit lane. He initially came to rest too far away from the pit wall but after a couple of "spin ups" was the requisite distance from the stalls.

  • Ken Murray — Incorrect Pit Stop — 5.000 seconds added


Lap 21 - Pit Lane - John Bradbury

John makes his pit stop on lap 21. This is too late, the pit stop window is laps 8 to 18.


Lap 35 - Turn 7 - Ken Murray

Ken's Ferrari runs out of steam in Coram curve and he has to make a shift R. But he doesn't pull into the pits to perform a Stop and Go. Normally this would attract a 30 second penalty but given that it is the last lap the shorter tariff has been applied.

  • Ken Murray — Missed Stop and Go — 15.000 seconds added

Moderator's Report

Summary

After a slow start that drops him down from second to fourth at the first corner, Hristo fights his way back into contention for the lead. In his efforts to get past John Bradbury's Cooper, Hristo outbraked himself at Double Droite and ran wide. This allowed John to romp away and seal yet another convincing win in his mighty Cooper. Hristo had to settle for second place. Jason Daborn secured third place on the podium with a very steady error free drive.

There was an interesting battle between Clive Loynes and Kruger Enge after Kruger made a 20 second pit stop instead of the required 13 second stop. This allowed Clive to get the jump on him after the stops. Clive held the advantage until Virage du Karting on lap 33 when an unforced error presented 6th place back to Kruger.


Lap 1 - Start Line - Steven Foster and Nigel Bradbury

Nigel is flanked by two Hondas that both get rocket starts. Nigel sees Clive Gardner in his right hand mirror and eases left to give him room when he appears in his peripheral vision. Nigel doesn't bank on Steven Foster being along side on his left, and as he moves across contact is made with the Honda's rear wheel. Fortunately Steven is unaffected but Nigel spins out.

Nigel would have been better off maintaining his line off the grid. It was Clive's responsibility to make a clean pass (which he did).

Racing Incident.


Lap 4 - Turn 5 - Napo and Clive Gardner

Napo is lining up Clive for a pass as they exit Virage du Parc. Unfortunately warp intervenes and Clive is punted off. Clive is entitled to a no-fault shift-R.

Warp incident.


Lap 18 - Turn 5 - Alan Wallace and Napo

Alan crashes out at Virage du Parc and then reverses back onto the track straight into Napo.


Lap 31 - Turn 1 - Clive Gardner and Lorenzo Galluzzi

Clive makes a mess of Courbe Armand Brouzes and ends up stationary on the racing line. Lorenzo can't avoid him and contact is made.

Racing Incident.

Summary

A start-to-finish win for John Bradbury earned him maximum points sending him to the top of the championship standings with one round to go. A superb consistent drive by Napo in the BRM secured second spot on the podium. A small mistake by Brendan at Right Hander on lap forty three was enough to let Kruger through to claim the final podium place.

Summary

A dominant flag to flag win for John Bradbury to clinch the Division 1 title in style. Brendan fought hard to bring his Cooper home in second place just ahead of Kruger in his Brabham.

Hristo Itchov pushed John all the way in the title chase and in the end had to settle for second place but with the consolation that Hiki-Waza Honda Racing won the Team title. Ms Fujikawa was very pleased. Lorenzo Galluzzi was the best of the rest securing third place in the championship.

This season has been dominated by a titanic struggle for the title between John and Hristo, winning all the races between them. The fight for the other podium places has been very clean with some close exciting racing throughout the season.


Lap 1 - Turn 1 - Jason Daborn, Clive Gardner, Clive Loynes and Steven Foster

Jason gets a good start from second on the grid but on the approach to Saite Devote his PC freezes and he has no control over the car. The Brabham veers right and hits the wall almost coming to a stop before it wanders onto the apex of Saite Devote where Clive Gardner can't avoid it. Clive Loynes and Steven Foster are close behind and are caught up in the melee. Sadly Jason is out of the race but fortunately the other drivers can continue without requiring a shift-R.

This incident was caused by a technical problem and consequently nobody was to blame.
